BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s attorney general says a Grand Forks organization violated open meetings law by holding unauthorized executive sessions to discuss firing its director.

Wayne Stenehjem concluded in his ruling that Circle of Friends Humane Society is a public entity that’s subject to the open records and meeting law because it receives public funds and acts as an agent of Grand Forks city and Grand Forks County.

Stenehjem ordered Circle of Friends to disclose the recording of the Sept. 25 and Oct. 8 executive sessions to Steve Wagner and any member of the public upon request, at no cost.

He says not complying within seven days could lead to a civil case and related costs as well as personal liability for people responsible for not complying.
